ECLIPSED YOUTH


ADOLESCENT INNOCENCE,
AMBITIONS, HOPES AND DREAMS,
IMAGINATION OVERWHELMS,
THE EYE THAT ALWAYS GLEAMS.

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE,
ALL IS WITHIN ARMS LENGTH,
OPTIMISTIC ATTITUDE,
PROVIDES THE GREATEST STRENGTH.

I WILL, I CAN, I AM,
THAT IS WHAT I BELIEVE.
KNOCK ME DOWN, I’LL GET BACK UP,
DEFEAT I CAN’T CONCEIVE.

BUT WITH ADULTHOOD EXPERIENCE,
THE TUNNELS LIGHT GOES OUT.
STAGNANT INSECURITY,
FEELING MORE SELF DOUBT.

DISHEVELLED ASPIRATIONS,
HOPES AND DREAMS THAT WON’T COME TRUE.
AMBITIONS THAT CANNOT BE REACHED,
A FAILURE THROUGH AND THROUGH.

CYNICAL APPROACH TO LIFE,
THE EYE BEGINS TO FADE.
ACCEPTING WHAT IS THROWN AT YOU,
YOUR BED HAS NOW BEEN MADE.

HOWEVER PESSIMISTIC,
THIS, TO YOU, MAY SEEM,
THE MESSAGE IS QUITE SIMPLE,
DO NOT GIVE UP YOUR DREAM.


I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENTS GOOD OR BAD. THANKS.

RYBO75.
